Booking in Neuschwanstein Castle for travel in December

Is advanced booking necessary for visiting Neuschwanstein Castle? We are travelling there on Dec 26th and was wondering if it will be crowded enough to warrant an advanced booking.

Neuschwanstein is always crowded and an advanced booking, in particular for the English-speaking tours, is wise any time. Dec 26 is a public holiday and can be expected to be extra busy.

Thanks BlandineForberg, if we are travelling from Munich and planning to start by 7 AM by train, can we book a 11 AM ticket at the castle?

You have to pick-up your tickets at least an hour before the designated tourstart, so before 10am. Just looking at what the DB website spits out as option you should start from Munich Hbf with the 6:53 train to Buchloe. You'd then make it to Hohenschwangau by 9:13 - in-time.
